"subtle or strategic diplomacy" the world will find out with his speech on tuesday. "a weakness runs through his foreign-policy. it looks to many that he has dithered, and of the liberated on afghanistan. managing squabbling officials and twisting the arm of, you karzai has accomplished -- twisting the arm of homage karzai -- hamid karzai, which will he be? clever or week? does this president have a strategy backed if necessary by force to reorder the world? or is he merely a presidential version of aldern pyle"? we wanted to use some of the words from "the ec
to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> lehrer: president obama has ordered his top advisers to revise the afghan war options they presented him. that word came today after the top u.s. diplomat in afghanistan warned against sending large new numbers of troops. judy woodruff has our lead story report. >> reporter: the president's call for new troop options came with 68,000 americans already on the ground, and calls for 40,000 more, from commanding general stanley mcchrystal. but the u.s. ambassador, retired lieutenant general karl eikenberry, reportedly has strongly advised against major new deployments until the afghan government confronts widespread corruption. reports of classified cables sent from eikenberry to president obama were splashed across the front pages of major newspapers today. the ambassador's advice seemed to be reflected in a white house statement issued last night. it read: "after years of substantial investments by the american people, governance in afghanistan must improve in a reasonable period of time." news accounts said four proposals were o
at home and abroad, to govern the country. it's a serious challenge for president obama, who soon has to decide whether to send tens of thousands of extra troops to combat the taliban. partly on whether he can trust karzai. many agree it will take more than just military might to meet those goals requiring karzai to live up his promises of boosting his own security forces and provide a table government. jeremy, vinita? >>> attorney general eric holder is taking heat from congress to try top terror suspects in new york city. republican senators argued a civilian trial would give suspected 9/11 mastermind khalid shaikh mohammad and others a world stage for propaganda. they said a civilian jury could acquit him. holder says that will not happen. >>> the senate has finally released a version of the health care reform bill. the total cost, $849 billion over 10 years. senate democrats claim it would cut the deficit by $127 billion. they promise coverage to 94% of americans. democrats say they will raise money for the plan through higher payroll taxes for the rich and taxes on cosmetic
. >> are we beginning to see the outlines though of an obama strategy? >> we are and trying to piece it together it's hard to come up with sort of specific numbers, but what we are seeing is that this is more likely to be a process, wolf, than the president coming out and saying we're going to do "x" number of troops, but what he's going to do is set benchmarks or targets for afghanistan and pakistan to meet. in other words, in afghanistan, you've got to -- you've got to be more independent, set up your troops, get rid of corruption. pakistan, start targeting al qaeda, start targeting militants. the big question, wolf, we don't know if they don't meet those benchmarks what do we do then? what's our stick, you know, because we're there for us, we're not there for them. >> it also looks like the administration is beginning to rethink the entire strategy in dealing with the recently re-elected hamid karzai? >> yeah. i spoke with one administration source who said to me let's just call it a recalibration because obviously this is an administration that's been very disappointed in karzai,
that president obama signed last january was way too small. the economy needs a second big infusion. conservative-leaning economists say no. they say it has been wasteful and ineffectual and harmful because it adds to the nation's debt. it says the legislation is helping an economy in a free- fall to grow again and shed fewer jobs that would otherwise have been shed. they say it is roughly on track. they want to avoid cutting teachers, police officers, and other workers. there is more on this story. we will read more but we want your thoughts on the need of a second stimulus package. we are asking you if you think it is a worthy step. you have an opinion on that, please call us. one more story -- this is talking about the jobless rate that was mentioned in the front- page piece. this is a bloomberg news story that you can find in "the new york times." it says that the unemployment rate fell in 10 states including massachusetts, where it declined to 8.9%, new hampshire dropped to 6.9% and west virginia which fell to 8.5%. the number of states with at 10% unemployment held at 14 last month. the sta
obama brought out so many more democrats. as far as geography, places like camden, new jersey, new ark, new jersey -- heavily african- american counties. if gov. corzine is turning out strong numbers there and winning by margins of 70/30, he will probably win the election. at the same time, there are a handful of gop leading counties in the state. if you see chris christie, the republican challenger, taking those with over 60%, he may be on his way to victory tonight. the big enchilada is the largest county in new jersey. it is historically a swing county. if chris christie can match or win there, he will win the election. no republican statewide has ever run the race in new jersey without this county. host: what about the impact of the third-party candidate? >> chris daggett, the independent, was taking upwards of 20% in some polls, but he has relief faded in recent weeks. he is back to single digits. in talking to folks here, they're uncertain of what is impact will be. the democrats believe the closer he is to 10%, the better chance to have. corzine is probably not going to get 50%

. in an interview she did with abc, she says president obama was incorrect and disingenuous on the whole death panel thing. she says, "he is not lying in that those two words, death panels, will not be found in any of the thousands of pages of different variations." gretchen: the other interesting thing, and we talked about this earlier when the first "oprah" clips came out, that she did not slam levi johnston at all in this interview for the most part. that was a change. because in the last couple of months there have been a lot of barbs thrown against levi johnston, the father of her daughter's baby. and in this interview she actually did sort of a joke about his decision to pose for "playgirm" and -- "playgirl" and she invited him over for thanksgiving dinner. think it was smart on her part to not continue the barb throwing. when asked the $24 million question about whether or not she will run for president in 2012 said that "right now it is not on my radar screen." brian: that thing is going to be a bestseller. she'll be on "hanity" tomorrow night. she will sit down with o'reilly after that. and

for that interview with president obama. [captioning made possible by fox news channel] captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- trace: new guidelines create confusion over cancer, and the government health plan is under fire. i am trace gallagher, in fort shepard smith. the news starts now. kills thousands of women every year. mothers and daughters, wives and sisters. now, some government scientists say that the way we are screen for breast cancer is wrong. >> we found that screening started at age 50 have a benefit. >> not all experts agree. >> there is not sufficient evidence at this time to warrant a significant change. trace: tonight, inside a potential life or death decision. when should women get screened? now i question triggering voting controversy tonight. it comes after a panel of scientists decided that most women do not meet routine mammograms until they reach their 50's, going against the advice of the american cancer society, which recommends yearly mammograms for women in their 40's. >> we continue to recommend screening for breast cancer start at age 40.
of them attended the service today but eight are still in intensive care. president obama said this. >> it may be hard to comprehend the twisted logic that led to this tragedy. but this much we do know. no faith just fice these murderous -- justifies these murderous and craven acts. no just and loving god looks upon them with favor. for what he has done, we know that the killer will be met with justice in this world and the next. bill: i think that was well said. as we reported yesterday, the assassin hasan was known to the army as a terrorist sympathizer. so now an investigation will take place to find out why the man was not discharged. apparently hasan had emailed a recruiter for al qaeda in yemen as many as 20 times.

that president obama and this administration are not doing the same. far from it. i am honored to be at the side of michelle bachmann, a great congresswoman. a great human being. a true american patriot. to hopefully be a voice of all americans who do not want to pass a obama government run health care. we do not want our freedom of choice taken away from us. president obama has his own obsession with trying to ram this health bill through to create a socialist america. we would be no better off than the european countries of canada and new zealand that suffered greatly from a poor health care system. their system creates many deaths. is that what we want? i agree with you. i say no as well. we, as freedom loving americans must not be scared into obama as radical chicago tactics. his agenda is not for the poor. it is slowly -- solely for his political gain. the lies and propaganda are all very blatant, as shown to us by those who exposed acorn, which is as corrupt as all the president's czars. and obama is willing to deny his connection to acorn, claiming no awareness of his -- of their support
